Re: Windows Vista SP2 Released
IE sees very little use on my primary rig, which is also a reasonably tweaked and stripped install. That may point more to a default service setting or settings which don't play nice with some common apps. I don't know.
Performance wise mine is right on par with win 7 except for file transfer (about 80% of win 7) and mem usage, which is about 10% higher than 7 with almost identical settings.
The next month or so will tell as I'll be loading this rig for workhorse duty + continued gaming, maybe another 20 or so apps getting installed and restarting a few services.
That should expose any remaining bugs that would get in my way.
